Occupational Therapists

    Recommended Posts

    Hi I'm new to the forum.

    Would love to hear from any occupational therapists who have made the move to South Aust as I am hoping to move in 2 years.:D

    Any advice would be really appreciated.

    Shame you are not hear now. My current employers are crying out for Occupational Therapists, in fact we are looking abroad for them, we are going to get an Occupational Therapist from New Zealand to come over soon.

    Can I add you both to my friends list for future reference.

    Would love to be in a position to come over now but still have 2 yrs of study.

    Do you think I would struggle to find a job newly qualified. I guess I would have quite a bit of competition with the new grads out there as they would automatically get reg where as I have to go through the 6 mth audit.

    Just out of interest what part of Adelaide are you living in as I need to check out house prices also. I would want a nice community with a good primary school. My daughter will be 5 and my son 17 when I go.

    Hi

    Hope you don’t mind me jumping on this thread but after some advice. I currently live in Adelaide and work in a admin role in Health. I’m looking for a new career direction and am looking at training as an Occupational Therapist. Can anyone point me in the right direction as where to look at the training/studying for this. I understand I would need to go uni and that is fine. Is it a course I can do part time. I have looked through the Flinders Uni web site but am quite confused about which foundation course I would need to do. Any advice/tips would be GREATLY appreciated .

    Thanks in advance

    University of south Australia have a bachelor of applied science (OT) course, I dont think its a degree you can do part time. That course is 4 year full time. I trained in the UK so hopefully there will be someone else who can give you more info
